Going on a Grouper... (what's that?)

Happy Wednesday! 

aka Happy Hump Day ladies :) I hope everyones week is going well and hopefully going fast ;) Wednesdays are such a tease sometimes because it's almost the weekend....(thursday counts as the weekend right?!). 

So some of you may have realized or picked up on the fact that I've haven't mentioned a boy on this little blog of mine...well ever... Or maybe you didn't haha that's fine too. But basically there is no boy in my life currently, and actually hasn't been for a while! I was dating someone during college and went through a really, really awful, horrible, I don't even want to share the upsetting break-up details with you all- break- up (did that make sense?). I've been solo for about a year now and I can confidently say that I am happy. I would be lying if I said I was never lonely. Because of course I am sometimes, it would be nice to have a guy in my life that loved me and I knew was there for me. But for now, I don't have that and it's okay with me. I think being alone for this long has taught me to be more confident, more independent and just overall content. I've been focusing on post-grad life- settling into my new apartment, settling into my career (separate post on that later!), focusing on friendships - new & old, family, and above all myself. 

Now, onto the fun part of this post. Tomorrow night I'm going on a Grouper date with two girlfriends from work. What is grouper?? Well it is a new social networking site that sets up 3 girls with 3 guys and you go on a group date organized by Grouper. They pick the time and place and all you have to do is show up! 

Why might am I doing this? Well because it's going to be hilarious, obviously. And it has the potential to be fun! My friend from work heard about it from friends who went on a Grouper in NYC and they said they had a great time! Did they meet the man of their dreams? No, but they met a group of guys that they wouldn't mind hanging out with again and they just had an overall fun time. 

So yes, I'm online dating when I'm 22. But notttt reallyy since it's a group thing aka I won't be alone and I'm mostly doing this for the story. I mean drinks with three guys with some of my girlfriends- WHY NOT? 

Also, you can submit two truths and a lie to the other group in advance if you'd like and this is what they've submitted to us: 

All-in-all the evening is shaping up to be prettyyy darn interesting. Stories (and hopefully photos) to come on the blog shortly!  



  1. Grouper sounds really cool! I can't wait to hear about it.

  2. Haha, I think those are some of the best truths/lies I've ever read... so creative! My hunch is that you guys will end up having a fun time!
